Hop harvest soon

This year’s hop crop will be ready to harvest very soon. There should be more than enough hop flowers for a full batch of home-brewed beer.

My Pride of Ringwood hop vine

My hop vine is growing well this year, hopefully I’ll harvest enough for a batch of beer this autumn. The hop vine is of the Pride of Ringwood (POR) variety, which is the major commercial hop variety grown in Australia. Very high in bitterness, but not renowned for it flavour or aroma, POR was developed in suburban Ringwood, Victoria by Carlton and United Breweries in the 1950’s.
